While we at the Riot take some time off to rest and catch up on our reading, we’re re-running some of our favorite posts from the last several months. Enjoy our highlight reel, and we’ll be back with new stuff on Monday, January 6th.

This post originally ran July 16, 2013.

You know what they say: There is nothing sexier than a man reading a children’s book.

Okay, so I don’t know if anyone actually says that.

But as a man who is often spotted reading children’s books in public, I really want this to be a thing. Completely self-serving, I know. To help make this happen, I’ve recruited some of Hollywood’s most dashing leading men to read to you from beloved children’s classics.

Everyone together now: THERE IS NOTHING SEXIER THAN A MAN READING A CHILDREN’S BOOK.
